Downward Dog Day Afternoon

“After an hour spent twisting like pretzels, the group of seven yogis in a class held Wednesday inside a cafe in Lincolnshire, England, were finally in shavasana, a position at the end of a yoga class — sometimes called corpse pose — where people sink into a meditative state by lying on their backs.” And they were really good at getting into that relaxed state. So good that some people walked by and assumed they were the victims of a mass killing. (Honestly, it looks like a violent crime scene every time I try to strike even the most basic yoga pose.) WaPo (Gift Article): A yoga class in corpse pose was mistaken for a ritual mass killing.
